Apple suppliers cutting back on production of components for iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus due to unexpectedly low for the company demand.
From a report from Digitimes, it follows that the decrease in orders is primarily due to seasonal trends. Looks like the iPhone 8 began to fall in the last few months of 2017, which is not typical for the phones of the manufacturer. Even Apple in its latest report, admitted that he did not know how customers will react to three of the flagship iPhone, so to compare the demand with the expectations of pointless.
On the news about the decrease in orders for components for the iPhone, the company’s shares lost 1% on the exchange.
Before making any conclusions, you should wait for a report by Apple, which will be published on the first of February. It will reflect the number of products sold and how much the company earned on it. Analysts believe that the manufacturer sells about 100 million iOS devices, 80% of which is iPhone. Unfortunately, Apple does not report sales of specific models, so will remain a mystery what part of the 80% belongs to the most expensive smartphone of the company.
The decline in sales of the iPhone will lead to a temporary shutdown of production lines to avoid the overabundance of components.
